Looking for Absinthe

  • 1

I will be in staying in Paris in the Latin Quarter for a week and would love to try some Absinthe. I've read that the "old-time authentic" Absinthe is illegal but I would still like to experience the process of the the drink, etc. Any suggestions?

  1. The Hotel Royal Fromentin, in Pigalle, does the whole absinthe thing in its bar. And there's a shop in the Marais, Vert d'Absinthe, which you can check out, although you probably shouldn't try and bring a bottle back with you....
